Thorsen Side Table Challenge #1: Announcement

03-18-2007 04:44 PM by Martin Sojka | 109 comments »

Thanks to the creativity and hard work of Karson, Mark and Michael we are starting our first unique Woodworking Challenge! Karson sent the proposal to Glen Huey, Senior Editor of Popular Woodworking and asked him for their support in this challenge. Glen whole heartily agreed. Karson's proposal was to use the cover project from February 2007 issue #160 of Popular Woodworking - Thorsen House Side Table - as our challenge. When we have the Summer and Winter Awards everyone builds their o...

Sharpening methods comparison

08-12-2017 09:04 PM by Bertha | 108 comments »

Rather than clutter up threads, I’m going to use this blog to keep track of my sharpening experiments. Let me know if there’s anything specific you’d like to see. I’ll start with rehabbing a chisel using grinder, diamond, sandpaper, and leather. Let’s start with a lowly antique store find: I tend to prefer cast steel tang chisels, usually English ones. This one’s a Moulson Brothers 5/8’ish tang with a busted up handle, split short ferrule...

Tool Chest Refurb #5: Everything Below the Lid

08-20-2012 06:26 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 104 comments »

Chest-like object has suffered a bit of neglect, to be sure, and for that there isn’t much of an excuse. Except for these two words: Family and Job. :-) Where in the heck am I with this refurb? Last installment says I ‘completed’ the lower skirt, but what’s pictured includes a skirt that’s not yet permanently attached to the chest. Issue? Well, kinda. But that’s not what this installment is gonna cover. Instead of the base, I’ve moved to the middle of the chest to work the uppe...

The Slippery Slope #8: Saw Sharpening! Preppin your weapons ...

07-01-2013 06:49 PM by chrisstef | 103 comments »

Wow, seems like I do one blog post per year, so … here’s my annual installment. My last post was a bit prophetic, “handsaws in my future”. I had a hunch that this was the direction my shop habits were heading but I wasn’t 100% convinced until now. I like quiet, I like the smell of wood being cut, ive got a 10 month old at home who isn’t the most sound of sleepers, and ive got some “old soul” in me. This leads me on a new journey into making t...

New Features: Blocklists

05-16-2010 06:35 PM by Martin Sojka | 103 comments »

Not one of the positive features but unfortunately it seems like there was no chance to avoid adding self-managed blocklists here at LumberJocks. Requested by many members recently I believe this new feature will be vital for further growth and good atmosphere here. When you choose to block someone, it means they: Can’t comment on your profile Can’t comment on your posts (projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews, workshop) Are removed as your buddy, and you are re...

Mr. Christopher Schwartz's rude answer (not so) Popular Woodworking Magazine

03-11-2011 05:44 PM by mafe | 101 comments »

Popular Woodworking Magazine – Mr. Christopher Schwartz rude answerbe careful with readers contributions, ‘Tricks of the trade’. Finally the answer came from Popular Woodworking Magazine, and what an answer. Since the last blog I have asked the magazine their opinion of their policy, and received an answer that they would talk about it, but then nothing happened. Those who have not followed the last blog can get the story here: So...

The wheels on the top secret project go round and round, round an….... Ok, I’ll stop that since the one I’ve worked on so far isn’t going around too well.I (William) am making a seperate post on the wheels since it has been my biggest fiasco of this project thus far. We (KTMM and I) changed the design of the wheels from the plan to use the material we had. I had this grand idea on how to true the circumference up balance it on my lathe. This post will start with the...
